Adele (Adèle Exarchopoulos) is a 15 year old girl who is determined to fall in love. But her experiences with boys just leaves her wondering what it’s all about. On a trip downtown, she spots Emma (Léa Seydoux) a girl with blue hair that really piques her interest. Unable to understand what it’s all about, she eventually finds Emma and the two learn together about social issues, growing up, love, and loss.

This is a French film that was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, and is a very touching story. Brutally honest, it’s often very painful to watch, but at the same time, it’s one of those movies that stay with you long after it’s over. It’s very touching, and the pain is really real. The story is very well done, and the actors are really excellent. There is a scene early in the film before Adele gets to know Emma with one of Adele’s best friends that is really awkward, but stunningly real. Be aware that this is a French film, and the NC-17 rating on the film is there for a reason. This film is very graphic in an intimate way, and uncomfortable watch, as it’s so real. You feel a lot like you’re eavesdropping on this poor girls efforts to become an adult, and it feels pretty creepy sometimes. Her heartaches will hit you full force, and so will the happiness and joy. Basically this is review of many emotions that will keep you thinking about it long after it’s over. It’s a foreign film, so it’s in French with English subtitles, but if you like realistic and highly emotionally charged stories, then this is a pretty good one.
